TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 29, 2011) - Sun News Network is proud to announce Michael Coren will host a new show in prime time called Coren Tonight.

Coren Tonight will be debuting this August at 7:00pm ET and repeat later in the evening for western audiences.

Michael Coren is an author, commentator and broadcaster. For the past 12 years, he has been the host of The Michael Coren Show on CTS. His weekly column appears in Sun newspapers and he has written regularly for The Catholic Register, Women's Post, The Landowner and The Interim. He is the bestselling author of 13 books including biographies of GK Chesterton, HG Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis. His most recent book, Why Catholics are Right, has been on the Canadian best-seller list for eleven weeks and has gone into its third printing.

"Whether it is taking on radical Islam or exposing political hypocrisy, Michael Coren has proven to be one of the most fearless, substantive commentators in Canada," said Sun News VP Kory Teneycke.
